Sally's Story...
Sally was left at the shelter's front door one hot day in July-2009. She immediately went into foster care as she would not eat due to abandonment. Foster mom worked patiently with her to build trust and tried different canned foods until she felt "safe" in a home again and started eating. There she stayed in foster care from July-09 to Mar-10. She no longer preferred canned food and was eating dry food and gained weight. Sally loves to be petted and will warm up to you after soft talk of telling her she is beautiful and safe. Lots of TLC to make her feel safe is what is needed right now. Sally needs a "forever" home without small children, but another cat as a companion if owner is not home during the day. During the fostering process, once Sally started eating, foster mom felt she was going to be OK, but could see she was lonely. Foster mom then added her own male cat to the foster room to keep her company. Sally loved this boy and was always wanting his attention and rubbing her head against him. Foster mom thinks Sally may have been ignored and possibly handled abruptly or pushed around in her prior home due to her shy behavior. Once Sally knows you feel love for her and relaxes, she will let you pet her and purrs contently. Sally then plays continuously with toy balls and scratching toy after getting TLC. She also loves to have a hiding place or box for her bed at night. After feeding and TLC, foster mom would hear the toy balls rolling around on the floor. She also likes watching/listening to TV or radio. Sally would love a loving-calm home and would do well with another adult cat as a companion. She "seems" to prefer a male cat that is laid back and also loves attention.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sally, a Milwaukee Domestic Shorthair cat was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Domestic Shorthair for sale in Milwaukee, or seeking a Domestic Shorthair cat from a breeder in Milwaukee.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Milwaukee already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Milwaukee breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Domestic Shorthair breeders who help with Domestic Shorthair rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Milwaukee paves the way for another one to be saved.
